not in the next 30 seconds but that's a good question you have asked. we'll move on to ron in elizabeth, indiana. ron? caller: i'd like to say that in my opinion, hillary clinton or any other very rich person being in office would be probably the worst possible case scenario for this country. i think that it's about time that some normal person, woman or man, be elected to office so that instead of serving corporate interests as our presidents have up to now, we would have some interest for the people. host: ron in elizabeth, indiana. from facebook. host: and here's some twitter comments. host: robert, north carolina, republican line. robert? caller: after this term of four years with the democrats, i don't think she's got a chance. i'm a business owner. more years of this, i'll be out of business. host: what kind of business do you have? caller: i do grading work, bulldozers. host: how has business been the last couple of years? caller: bad. i'm struggling to stay in business. i don't know what to look forward to, i can't hardly say in -- stay in business. an the democrats in this country, i th

to her who did not survive. >> our colleague ron barber, same thing. this epidemic of gun violence, the fact that in my congressional district, i can tell you right now where gun shops are. they're not having a problem unloading those guns in a manner of speaking to young people who come and purchase them or acquire them somehow. we've got to deal with this. it's going to take not just congressional leadership. it's actually going to take presidential leadership to open this conversation. we haven't done that. >> kenji, i want to ask you you about the second aemt. people know i have a scandal obsession. there was a great line in the film where this week where there's conversation about i bet you stopped after the second aemt. he was talking to the conservative. what does the second amendment tell us about gun ownership? >> the second amendment says a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state. the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> the big debate about the clause where -- if you go back to what parker is doing in grammar
. first and foremost, because of anchorman 2, the legend of ron burgundy continues. right? when i first saw this movie in 2004, i just immediately rushed out, bought my sex panther cologne and have been spearing people with tridents ever since. what bodes well for this one is they wayed a long time to make this one and the entire cast is back. great sign, and even though the first one was kind of lightning in a bottle, i have my fingers and toes crossed. >> i feel that i truly am the model for ron burgundy, if you look at my facebook page with the early pictures of me, i am that man. excited about the sequel. >> i love it. you have the voice too. >> thanks. how about some others besides anchorman? we've got iron man, no direct reference to me, but what do you think of that one? >> no, i don't know about that. look at those bicepses. now, "iron man 3" is led, again by robert downey junior who i think was born to play this role and based on the trailer, this one looks pretty dark. it looks very dark nooistesque and this is when robert downey junior can really show us his acting chops. dir
representative ron kirk is also on the mentioned list in terms of retiring. host: but none of those formally? guest: not official . host: has anybody said i'm sticking around? guest: that would be kind of unproforma but i think kathleen seebluss said she would like to stay because of the implementation of the health care law. no one announces that. they kind of get the word out there. there have been some talk about whether eric holder will retire but he told people he would like to stay for a year or certainly until september when we're likely to get a new f.b.i. director. host: if you're not leaving immediately at the end of the first term are you expected to stay for all four years of the second term or is there another dated where turnover occurs? guest: the way i understand it is if president obama has told people if they do stay he wants them to stay for at least a year because he doesn't want to spend all of his time filling these jobs. so the rule of thumb is if people are still in place at the end of january they'll probably stay for the entire year. host: we're taking your calls an

"dear ron," she writes, "i think you are the only person who will understand the significance of what i'm trying to say." >> very personal. >> absolutely. >> reporter: mrs. that th thatcher's charm offense worked and they remained friends long after they left power. nbc news, london. >>> an elementary school c
. my name is ron sarazen and i am president of the united states capitol of the historical society. memories that have shaped the public careers of these senators. it is hoped that this will provide listeners with a deep appreciation for the human dimension of representative government we know as the united states capitol. senator daniel k. inoye was named after a methodist minister. in march 1943, he enlisted in the only second regimental combat team. he saw combat in italy and southern france and was badly wounded during an engagement for which he was awarded the distinguished service cross, which was later upgraded to the medal of honor. the highest award for military valor. with financial assistance from the g.i. bill, inouye graduated from the university of hawaii and the george washington university law school. when hawaii became a state on august 21, 1959, daniel inouye won elections for the united states house of representatives is the new states first congressman. later collected the united states senate in 1962, he currently is serving his eighth term in the united states
for the office of vice-president of the united states congressman paul ryan of wisconsin. congressman ron has been the most forceful and articulate voice capitol hill for a vital but simple proposition, that we must balance our federal budget or we will face impending economic disaster. even as we come together here today to certify the results of this election, make no mistake that this is a political battle that this country will fight again. i for one hope that this is not the last time we will hear congressman ryan kos unnamed nominated in this chamber, but regardless of who the messenger -- ryan's name nominated in this chamber, but regardless of who the messenger -- of with a messenger will be, we may face a catastrophe that neither side of the political aisle like to see. in conclusion, i am pleased to nominate congressman ryan of wisconsin or vice president, and i thank you for your time.

/7 in perryville, and only ron dull. so head into the new year, how much optimism is there about the new gambling revenue stream as gaming expands in the states? >> when we discussed this before on "reporters' notebook," i use the word convenience, because if i live in the district of columbia or maryland, if there's a gambling casino at national harbor, i will go to the closest one, and especially like we were saying earlier, you will go to the newest operation because that has all of the attractive lights for the time being. i think the revenue will increase over the period of time as statistics have shown, although there are some stats that still say there could be a drag on the budgets as well as the promises that were made about more revenue. >> there are questions about the novelty once the newness wears off, once there is a new place, everybody goes there. it's a novel tea thing, and the novelty of the old new place wears off, and the question is how many people really overall are gambling. are there more people gambling and producing revenues or are the same people going to the newer venu
